    So far, like the quad-core Exynos powered Galaxy S III, the new quad-core Exynos powered Samsung Galaxy Note II can work with the FiiO E7, the iBasso D12, Leckerton UHA-6S MKII, the ODAC and the VentureCraft Go-Dap X; has some issue with the HeadAmp Pico; and doesnt work with the FiiO E17.

    So, in regard to standard USB audio, the behaviour of the Galaxy Note II is likely identical to the behaviour of the Galaxy SIII.

    USB audio is enabled on Texas Instruments Blaze tablet, which is targeted at developers.

    "The two HS USB ports are the standard High Speed Host ports and are used for connecting devices like Mouse, Keyboard, USB stick, Camera, USB audio Headset/speakers etc. Also, many customers use the EHCI interface for Modem Connection. If you connect a camera to this port, you can browse the pics on the SD card in camera in the gallery using the PTP daemon in ICS. Also, you can connect USB Headset or speakers and play audio over USB."

    "The Samsung Galaxy S III: AndroidNZ goes hands-on, brings you our thoughts and exclusive details
    ...and what about those USB audio drivers?

    Anyone with a passing familiarity with me will know this was one of the questions I most wanted an answer to. You see Supercurio was able to ascertain that USB audio drivers are present on the S3, only there was no way for him to know whether they work out of the box.

    Sadly it seems they do not.
    To my great disappointment there was no audio output on connecting my FiiO E17 USB DAC and headphone amplifier. I guess we'll just have to keep waiting for some enterprising developer to make use of those orphaned drivers that are just sitting there on the S3..."

    Samsung Galaxy S III interworks with USB DAC/amp FiiO E7:

    Samsung Galaxy S III triggers a new era of Hi-Fi for the masses with affordable rig:

    . affordable (subsidized) smartphone

    . affordable common USB DAC/amp compliant with PC or Mac, like FiiO E7 (us$80)
    http://www.amazon.com/FiiO-Portable-Headph...39194973&sr=8-4
    NwAvGuy geeks verdict: "The biggest compliment I can pay the E7 is I cant find much I would change for a portable product in this price category."
    NwAvGuy: FiiO E7 USB DAC & Amp
    "Clearly, the E7 is priced very competitively, and I consider it a good product not some cheap Chinese stuff. Not only is the E7 packed with features, it also comes with a solid build quality, and a solid sound quality as well."
    Fiio E7 Portable DAC | Headfonia

    . affordable headphones, like Digitech Pro Monitor Headphones (us$50), clone of Fischer Audio FA-003, Brainwavz HM5 or Lindy Premium Hi-Fi headphones
    Pro Monitor Headphones - Jaycar Electronics
    "Now that I've had these for a good month I can honestly say they are my 'New' daily headphones!
    I simple love the music that comes from these headphones.
    They are beautifully balanced with sparkly highs that are not offensive to the ears, mid's that introduces a 'fun' factor to the music for all genres and lastly lows that are firm, bassy and goes amazingly deep with out distorting or overpowering the rest of the music.
    The clarity is excellent with a very nice sound stage and for a 'closed' headphone they do sound quite open and spacious!
    Isolation is fantastic especially listening to music or playing games at night.
    Comfort is excellent and the 'killer' clamp grip slowly eases after regular use! I've listened to these all night and in to the early morning without wanting to take them off!"

    So far, like the quad-core Exynos powered Galaxy S III, the new quad-core Exynos powered Samsung Galaxy Note II can work with the iBasso D12 and the ODAC, and has some issue with the HeadAmp Pico.

    So, in regard to standard USB audio, the behaviour of the Galaxy Note II is likely identical to the behaviour of the Galaxy SIII.

    Small question, does the Nuforce uDac work with the phone (usb audio) or do you not have it to test? If I were to get one of those usb cables I could try mine out and let you know .

    Quick question. What the Hell is this?
    If you're referring to usb audio it's the idea that you can hook up a USB DAC (Digital analog converter usually reserved for computer use) and hook it up to this device bypassing the internal dac (improving audio quality/dynamics). As far as I can tell all one needs is a otg usb adaptor that plugs into the bottom of the device and a USB DAC. Hope that helps.

    As far as I know, there is no interworking test between a Galaxy S III and a NuForce uDAC for the time being.

    Apparently "Galaxy S3 + (some) USB DAC" and "(some) computer + (some) USB DAC" have at least the same sound quality:

    "How about the SQ of the S3 + NuForce Icon HDP? What headphones do you use?"

    "It's quite good. Slightly, not very noticeable, better than it was connected to my computer.
    So if you wanna know more about this, you can just simply refer to those review of HDP.
    P.S. I am using HD600 & UM1 for testing"
    Wolfson DAC confirmed for Galaxy S3!

    "For anyone interested, the D12 USB DAC works when connected to a Galaxy S3. It sounds the same to me as it does when connected to a computer."

    "ODAC + NECO V.3 + Sennheiser HD580 = A MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN.
    I can't tell you how beautiful this rig sounds. We all know how well the HD580/600 scales with better sources and amps.. but synergy is often undervalued. The ODAC is beautifully resolving and clean.. but the Neco really steals the show, IMO."

    VentureCraft sees potential in Android & standard USB audio.
    VentureCraft delays the release date of its latest headphone amplifier Go-Dap X in order to modify it so that it can interwork with the Samsung Galaxy S3.

    "Go-Dap X releasing date in stores will be on Sep. 25th due to this Galaxy S3 modification."
